I'm currently obsessed with the Latin American-influenced Techno being put out by the label tratratrax, and artists like Nicknoexit, Invt305, and Bitterbabe. I'm still pretty new to this sound but I'm loving incorporations of traditional Dembow rhythms with influences from UK Bass Music all tied together with incredible club-ready sound design. A lot of it hits that perfect sweet spot of heads-down club tracks while also being absolute party starters.
Burial - Archangel.
One of my all-time favourite records and a cover that perfectly represents the mood and vibe.
I really enjoyed the recent collab between Keep Hush and Berghaus. I always enjoy when brand partnerships can go beyond just marketing and they way that Keep Hush used this as an opportunity to highlight local up coming DJs in different areas felt like a big win and very in keeping with there whole ethos.
HOTTEST RECENT VIDEO
Jeshi - 3210.
I'm a huge fan of the track by Jeshi and absolutely loved how the video was entirely practically shot leading to a creatively stunning music video. The choice of zoopraxiscope was an amazing way of capturing that blurry feeling of constant night-outs and feeling lost in the city that constantly moves forward with or without you.
The Odd Future logo will always have a soft spot in my heart from my teenage years.
Shameless self-promo but you should follow Shuffle 'n' Swing. This is the Record Label / Collective / Party Series I've been running alongside my good friend Josh B for the past 5 years. We are focused on preserving and modernizing the original energy and sound of UK Garage through a string of reissues and releases from new artists, while also throwing parties to give this sound a home and highlighting our contemporaries in the scene.
Personal one but always loved Ewen Spencers "UKG" photographs. Stunning shots capturing the essence of the dancefloors of that era.
